The GD in European History? Ummmm ... "The Soviets in '72: Bozos or Bolos?" I'm impressed. That plus must have been for sheer chutzpah.

The KGB tried to integrate themselves into the Bolo's.
Or was it the Bozo's?.

The CIA were working on the Bolos. The KBG went for the Bozos. They liked the clown noses, because it hid their Russian accents. "Vy do vee talk vunny? It is zis nose."

It was a comparison of the Dead's approach to music with Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy; I believe I posted about it here when I was writing it. It wasn't total BS but it was a stretch.

Much more impressive than my college Nietzsche paper, wherein I refuted him by comparing his ideas to Carlos Castaneda and Crack in the Cosmic Egg. Neither of which, I should point out, were assigned reading. I still remember it because, well, it's so stereotypically comical in retrospect.

That really is funny ... were you trying to live up to all the stereotypes or what? :) Didn't you say you switched majors to accommodate your Dead touring schedule?

Yup, that was probably the same year. I was trying very hard to make 1979 into 1969. It was a very educational endeavor -- just didn't have a lot to do with anything as mundane as major requirements! I got serious later. I mean about academics. I was perfectly serious in '79, just about, well, different things :-)
